Beer4000 (4433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
330 ml bottle. Dark brown body, almost black with a beige head. Nice aroma with citric fruit, pine and some roasted malt. Flavor is refreshing fruity, some pine, dark malt, light roasted and decent bitterness. Medium body and OK aftertaste. Quite nice and smooth, but a bit on the safer side and actually rather standard black IPA.

Black color, small beige head. Aroma of tropical fruits, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and piney hops. Taste has similar notes - dry sweet with medium bitter hoppy finish and dry roasty aftertaste. Medium to full body and average carbonation. Nice black IPA, very enjoyable.
